Please read this important message about the Written Declaration that some members of the EU Parliament wrote to push WHO to recognize MCS and EHS in the ICD-11, the new code of diseases that will be released in 2015.

We need that more than 50% of the members of the EU Parliament support this Declaration BEFORE 14 June.
Here in attachment you find all the information you need to contact your national representatives at the EU Parliament (of any party) and ask them to support this Declaration.

You also have the list of EU MeP emails. So you just need to write them and possibly call them by phone to have a feedback.
THIS IS A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE THESE TWO�ENVIRONMENTAL ILLNESSES RECOGNIZED, SO PLEASE ACT NOW!
Plaese contact me or Francisca Gutierrez Clavero from Spanish organization Asquifyde for any more information.
Best regards,

ENGLISH

�

We have submitted a Written Declaration to the European Parliament asking for a POLICY RECOMMENDATION as a result of which:

�

a) All European countries would recognise both Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) and Electro Hypersensitivity (EHS) in their International Classification of Diseases (ICD), since patients from the member states find themselves in situations of inequality regarding health, legal and social issues. The World Health Organisation (WHO) recognises the sovereignty of the countries in this regard. MCS has been recognised in Germany, Austria and Luxembourg, but not in the other European Union countries. EHS is recognised as a disability in Sweden.

�

b) This POLICY RECOMMENDATION would be forwarded to the World Health Assembly.

�

c) The European Parliament would request the WHO to include MCS and EHS in the 11th version of the ICD, which is currently being developed and will be released in 2015, as well as in any other spin-off classifications and in the List of Occupational Diseases of the International Labour Office (ILO).

�

European MCS and EHS patients associations have been set a deadline period between March 12th and June 14th 2012 during which we can contact politicians and MEPs from our respective countries.

�

According to our data base there are 755 EMPs and we need a majority of their signatures in order to get this Written Declaration passed. �It will be an arduous task.

�

The European Parliament has suggested that we create and send out illustrated information to all EPs.

The email to be sent will attach or enclose the following documentation:

1.����� A link to the template of the email so it can be downloaded directly from the web (in English): �ONE CODE 4 MCS � 4 EHS (CLICK HERE). �

2.����� The email template in Word or PDF to attach to the email of the EMPs, so if they can print out and �in situ� circulate them and spread the campaign. �

3.����� The Written Declaration translated to all languages.

4.����� The EMP database that we have created to facilitate the association�s task of spreading of this campaign to EMPs. ��

5.����� A 2012 calendar of the European Parliament sessions.� We are especially interested in the plenary sessions. They are printed in red.������

�

HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED IN THIS CAMPAIGN?

The work of associations, physicians, scientists, and the sick or all who feel identified with this problem starting from now will consist of launching this campaign to obtain the majority of votes, i.e. 378. �

To achieve this, you can carry out different actions:

1)����� Send the e-mail template to all the data based MEPs in the days preceding the plenary sessions by attaching:

��������� The same text but in Word or PDF format.

��������� The Written Declaration translated into all languages.

2)����� If possible, contact EMPs, either personally or through third parties. �They can be contacted by telephone.

3)� Contact politicians from each country so that through their respective political parties they will contact their EMPs.

4)�� Forward the email template and the attached documents to other associations so that they can carry out the same work as us, wherever they are.

In regards o proceeding before the media, it would be to advantageous to carry them out in each country in the days preceding plenary sessions.

We hope to be able to count on your maximum collaboration, even though it is not a law, �it is a very important Policy Recommendation which can help us advance towards achieving the ICD code (International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems) for MCS and EHS at a European and global level. �

Cordially yours,
